GARCIA JARQUIN, Brenda et al. Knowledge Transfer and Technological Innovation: A Traditional Literature Review. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e008.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

In this document 1099 research articles concerning the relationship between the transfer of knowledge and technological innovation were reviewed, from these approaches: national, regional, sectorial, organizational, cluster and intra-company in order to identify areas of opportunity of this topic. Also, these approaches were classified into five guidelines: statistical analysis, concept maps, conceptual analysis, literature review and others. Nowadays there is an extensive use of qualitative methods, especially models and conceptual analysis, because most studies are focused on knowing how knowledge within organizations is transferred. Similarly, it was found that within the transfer process more emphasis is placed on the receiver of knowledge rather on than the issuer. Therefore, it is suggested that future research consider both actors, the use of quantitative techniques with a systemic perspective and consider increasing micro, small and medium enterprises for studies.

Keywords : technological innovation; qualitative methods; micro; small and medium enterprises; models and conceptual analysis; knowledge transfer.
